Friday Frock O’clock


Limited Edition Shimmer Stripe Dress, F&F at Tesco, £25

Yesterday, I was ruminating my choice of dress for the wedding I posted two outfits for last week with Gemma, and she sent me today’s frock. Those of you who know Gemma will know that she is Queen Of The Bargains and makes being on a budget effortlessly stylish. I know social events like weddings often cause a real problem for those of you trying to squeeze the pennies, or if in fact you just prefer to spend your money on something other than a new dress. Even if you’re not trying to save, everybody loves a bargain, and at £25 this dress is an absolute steal.

Right now I am lusting after pastels in every shape, shade and form and this frock reminds me of a tray of whipped gelato or the British seaside, a la Mulberry’s SS12 campaign. With the stripes and the shape however, it strays into preppy territory and you can bring it right up to date with the SS13 addition of metallic accessories, like the pretty model is wearing here. And for £25, why not wear it to the seaside?

Have a fabulous weekend readers!

Love,

Friday Frock O’clock

After featuring this dress, 2 weeks ago, I have seen striped dresses everywhere and ended up picking one up in Marks and Spencers, but unfortunately can’t find it online to share today. Always a spring time staple, it also happens to be bang on the monochrome trend right now, so if you’re looking to invest in something that will go the fashion mile this season but stay in your wardrobe much longer, it’s a no-brainer. Here are 6 striped monochrome dresses (I deliberately left out spring time navy and white combos to stay within the monochrome trend,) for different body shapes and wearability, all of which are under £50.

  1. Skater stripe dress, Next £50
  2. Monochrome Midi dress £14.99 New Look
  3. H&M £19.99
  4. Wide stripe £39.99
  5. Combination stripe dress £35.99
  6. Block bottom black dress £35.99, all Zara.

Now all you guys have to do is pick a favourite. Answers in the comments box please!

Love,
